Tilt-a-Whirl, The Twenties & Tobe Hooper!
I posted a poll last September 2012 asking what you thought the next decade of top ten horror film lists should be. At this point I have completed top ten lists for each year of the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. The results of the aforementioned poll was heavily in favor of the 1960s but the runner-up years were tied at 6 each, the 1990s and the 1920s. The month of November will be dedicated to The Twisted Twenties! Unfortunately there were not enough horror films made in the 1920s to do top ten lists for each year. IMDB only lists 10 films for 1921! Instead of the top ten lists I will be doing one top thirty in three parts. There will also be reviews, GIFs and slideshows all in celebration of The Twisted Twenties!
This weekend I will be going to the PNE (Pacific National Exhibition) to fill up on junk food, go on vomit-inducing amusement rides, play crown and anchor and buy some crap I don’t need. The weekend viewing will consist of Mervyn LeRoy’s 1956 film The Bad Seed, Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 film Stalker and Orson Welles’ 1962 film The Trial. Next week I will have another entry in my Favourite Five project, a review for John Paizs’ 1985 Canadian treasure Crime Wave and music from Alex North.
